On Friday mornings, during my prayer time, I typically reflect back on the week. I'm often confessing that I could have done things better. I could have been more compassionate. I could have not gotten upset so quickly. I should have shown more of Him & less of me.
I know, whether I realize it at the time or not, that I'm leaving my fingerprint every place I go. I want it to be a positive one. One that points to Jesus.
While in New Orleans I spoke about our current assignment from the Lord. One of the things we talked about was "how will we be graded on this assignment". Isn't this what every kid wants to know from their teacher?
With God it's pretty simple. My life - the way I live it - will reflect what kind of grade I'm getting. Does my life reflect the person of Jesus? Does it show more of Him and less of me?
In my heart - this is the kind of life that I want to live. I know I've got a long way to go. I'm so grateful that He gives me grace upon grace to get it right!
I heard this song last week and have been so encouraged by it - I hope you enjoy your Friday!
